Virtual sound effects replace in software what was once a hardware unit in a rack in a sound studio.

 

Yes, so you are referring to a graphic equalizer, something I suspected but it was unclear due to word choice.

I used MOG before it was shut down, it had better sound quality than Pandora and a better user interface than iTunes radio.

If you're really that shallow, good luck to you.

As a blow to the fad that these garbage products are%u2026 I hope Apple removes the "Beats" name from the whole product lineup. That would be highly unlikely though. Beats = Marketing hype and nothing more. Preying on the ignorance of children in ways similar to the tobacco industry back in the 60s, 70's and 80's

Forget where I read this yesterday ... something on affordable luxuries generally. Got me wondering Is Cook recommissioning Apple from "computers for the rest of us" to "the best in tech for the rest of us"?

The first mission statement has held up for thirty years. Altho' Apple dropped the word computers from its name years ago, its mainstay products are still computers ... traditional computers, with storage, processors, and screens.

New tech might not have storage, processors, or screens. Just sensors (nearables) connected to servers (farables) through hubs (hubbles), that is, phones and tablets.

The corollary would be "the best in tech for the rest of us ... us including China." Sounds like China is a big part of Apple-think these days.

Not cheap tech. It's about great tech. The best tech ... for the rest. The purveyors of cheap tech did not and never would create the iPhone, the Mac, or the iPad. Cheap is a good thing too. But cheap doesn't get you great, whereas as great engenders cheap.

Ah. Here's what's in my gut: As we watch the world shift toward inequality and as the wealthy run the show more and more, great, simple, useful, and affordable tech is kinda subversive, yes? The iPhone proves that great does good all around.

Wait, I thought we were talking about Beats. Like the headphones?

Dunno a thing about Beats. Depends on what Apple does with Beats, doesn't it?

Sure. Maybe the idea is to start with a successful brand, and engineer the best tech into it, but this seems like an expensive way to start R&D.

 

They should probably buy Monster Cable while they're at it. The Lightning cables would fit right in.

Why not just say outright that you don’t understand what you’re talking about?

Thanks for proving me right.

Right? You're not even in the right conversation. If you have something of substance to say, then say it. If not, then get back to reading Dr. Seuss or whever you're doing between cartoons.

:lol: Nothing more can be said; nothing more needs said. You don’t have a clue what you’re on about and are desperately trying to scramble to cover it up.

Going back to QuickTime in 1991, Apple has been on the front lines of audio technology. Nobody knows more about it.

Yeah, Apple's got the digital/codec side figured out (maybe not on all platforms though). Buying Beats may well get them the talent to develop some of the best hardware too, but Beats just haven't demonstrated that knack to this point.

Seems most likely to me. HTC gained a lot by having that Beats logo on their great phone. Samsung having a plug in and go iTunesish competitor and the Beats brand/Dre flogging them in whatever he can find, it seems worth the cash to stop that.
